Allah Rakhi's Group
In this Group: Allah Rakhi, Bashira, Iffat
Allah Rakhi is a 46-year-old housewife who lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of seven children. Her husband owns a fruit shop from which he sells apples, bananas and oranges in the market. This is the only source of income for the family.

Presently Allah Rakhi’s husband is interested in offering more variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his income and savings. However, due to his lack of capital he finds it difficult to do so.

Therefore, as head of her borrower's group Allah Rakhi is applying for a 105,000 PKR loan through Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With her third of the loan proceeds she can help her husband buy a variety of fruits from the field and sell them in the market at a profit. With these earnings her husband plans to grow his business.

Allah Rakhi is very thankful for Kiva and BRAC Pakistan’s assistance.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
